A trendy neighborhood with a thriving art scene full of fabulous restaurants and boutique shops. An excellent place to call home. 

Welcome to Chelsea

Chelsea is a bustling neighborhood on Manhattan’s west side with a thriving art scene, wonderful restaurants, and great shopping. The homes throughout the area are a combination of classic townhouses, luxury high rises, and traditional low-rise buildings, with many featuring an array of amenities such as rooftop lounges. Residents have everything they need within the neighborhood without ever having to leave. However, its convenient location on the west side still grants easy access to other parts of the city. Considered to be one of the most desirable places to live in Manhattan, Chelsea is an excellent place to call home. 
As one of the newer developments in Manhattan, Chelsea attracts entrepreneurial professionals and young families. As a primarily residential neighborhood, those who call this corner of the city home benefit from the best of both worlds when it comes to New York City living. They have a relatively quiet neighborhood, but still an ever-flowing amount of community events. Dubbed the art district, this bustling neighborhood is bursting with galleries, exhibits, and shows to attend. There is also a multitude of parks, restaurants, and boutique shopping to enjoy.
